Because Mambo does not have to be treated with PGRs, it develops significantly larger flowers than any other multiflora Petunia. Its compact and non-stretching plant habit results in a superb shelf life during the shipping and sales period. Mambo shows great weather resistance, resulting in a superb garden performance.

Petunia multifora F1 Mambo, natural dwarf

Family:                   Solanaceae
Use:                    Outdoor containers, pot and pack, suitable for borders and beds.
Plant type:          Annual
Height in pot:      10-15 cm (4-6  in.)
Garden height: 15-20 cm (5-8  in.)
Seed count: 8,000-11,000 seeds/gram (255,000-300,000 seeds/oz) Seed  count  varies  by variety  and seed lot.

pH 5.9  to 6.2
Media  EC 0.5  – 0.75

Stage 1: radicle emergence
Radicle  emergence will occur  in 3-4  days.
Moisture: keep media wet but  not  completely saturated to prevent lack of oxygen.
Covering is not  necessary. Light: Petunia will germinate better in light versus  in the  dark.
Temperature: 22-25ºC (72-77ºF )

Stage 2: expanding stem and cotyledons
Moisture: keep media moist  but  not  wet  to allow  roots to penetrate.
EC. 1.0-1.25
Temperature: 18-20ºC (65-68ºF)
To induce early  flowering a day  of  at  least   14  hrs  at
3500 lux (350  foot candles) is needed.

Stage 3: development of first true  leaves
Moisture: reduce  moisture  levels   for  compact  sturdy growth. Allow media to dry in between watering. Temperature:  18-20ºC  (65-68ºF) To reduce stretching do not use  ammonium-based
fertilizers  but replace with calcium-based fertilizers. EC. 1.25-1.75
Supplemental lighting up  to an  16-18 days  will induce early  flowering.

Stage 4: finishing/holding stage
Moisture: Keep media relatively dry to prevent stretching.
Temperature:  15-18ºC  (60-65ºF) Temperatures  below
15ºC (60ºF)  will delay  flower  initiation. Fertilizing  and EC: see  stage

Growing on:
Low boron levels may  cause tip abortion and blindness. Use of calcium-based fertilizers  will prevent calcium deficiency.
pH:  keep pH above 5.7  and below  6.4  to prevent iron deficiency.
Moisture: Allow media to dry and plants slightly  to wilt between watering. Best result  with growth regulators is after  application of watering when foliage is dry.
Light: Most Petunias need long  days  (> 14  hrs ) to pro- mote early  flowering. In low  light  areas supplemental lighting of  4,000-6,500 lux  (400-650 foot  candles)  is advisable.

Growth regulators:
Petunia Mambo is naturally dwarf  and does not  need growth regulators to provide a salable plant.  However, PGRs can  be  applied to  provide extra  compact plants. The plants respond to Daminozide  (Dazide, B-Nine  85) at 2-3  g/litre. Stop before flower  buds  develop.

Control: common insecticides can  be used, check  for labelled products

Pythium,  Phytophthora –  Damping off.   Good hygiene is essential. Botrytis and Powdery  mildew  can  also  be  a problem.
